    I just made a tongue and wheel kit so I can connect my engine lift to my Cub Cadet and move engines around in the back yard. I posted more pictures and information above in the TECH section under HOMEMADE TOOLS.

      That was another reason for making it.
      The storm last week blew down a tree in the back yard, and this could haul the logs away.
      Now I need to make a giant tongs to grab the logs.
      Making tools never ends.

        Homemade Tools Shift Lever Spring Remover
        by Tom Wesenberg
        I just posted pictures and descriptions of 2 styles of tools I made to remove the shift lever springs in the CHASSIS section under Homemade Tools.

        This is by far the best design for a shift lever spring remover tools, and it's not too hard to make.
        Vince posted a picture of this style years ago, and I like it better than my first 2 designs, so this is the one I use all the time...

        Homemade Tools Distributor Tester
        by Tom Wesenberg
        Here are some pictures of the homemade distributor tester I made several years ago. I mainly built it to check distributor cams. On the inside of the cabinet I store a dial indicator and degree wheel that I use to check the cam opening, lift, and closing. The most important is to see if the openings all happen at exactly 90 degrees apart. The cams I've tested have all been within 1/2 degree, so I'd...

        I copied Toms distributor tester invention to the home made tools tech thread. While doing that I was looking at all the ingenious innovations that have been posted there.

        Homemade Tools Engine Stand
        by Tom Wesenberg
        Having an engine stand makes storing and transporting Model A engines much easier and safer than using an old tire.
        I cut four pieces of 2 x 6 seventeen inches long, and four pieces of 2 x 6 eight and a half inches long.
        I used four #8 x 2 1/2" square drive screws to fasten each vertical board to the horizontal board.
        I used only 2 screws on each end of the bottom boards to...

        Mitch, I hope this wasn't your garage? If it was, I bet he didn't last long enough to put the car down.

        Buying 'Made In USA' Tools From Grainger's? A Warning...
        by Ayyy
        With few exceptions, I go out of my way to buy USA tools over buying imports. When I use my tools on my cars, I need them to fit right and to last. Maybe you buy tools the same way..

        I recently placed an order with Grainger's. The item illustration showed "Made In USA". When the item arrived it was "made in china". I called Grainger's on it. Basically they said, "the...
